THINGS TO DO! Weekend of February 22-24, 2019

We survived the flu – and somehow, me and daddy never caught it. Thank goodness for small miracles! It was a rough week though between sick days and snow days, we spent a lot of time indoors and went stir crazy! I hope you were able to enjoy the last couple of weeks. If you were on February break, then I am sure you are happy school is back in session on Monday.

This weekend is pretty quiet as far as special events go, but there are still plenty of things on our calendar. I see a possible storm in the radar but let’s hope it doesn’t affect our weekend too much!

I am working on a few more reviews, as well as one of my favorite guides: maple sugaring! I also already have Easter on the brain and spring break!

Enjoy the weekend — get out of the house while you can (before we get snowbound again)!

**Please check before you head out that an event is still happening. Winter is officially here and things do get canceled/delayed/postponed when there is bad weather. I cannot always update the calendar with cancellations, so it is important that you click on the links provided or call before you head out.
